See Clearly

by | 18 Jul 2018 | Eye Health, News

Did you know that even though you may still see clearly today, many of the most serious eye diseases develop gradually, often without noticeable signs in their early stages?

Don’t wait until it’s too late

Every 65 minutes an Australian loses part or all of their vision^ and a staggering 42%* of people wait until their eyes deteriorate before having their vision and eye health examined. While many of us recognise the need for preventative dental and general health check-ups, we’re generally less aware of the importance of regular preventative eye examinations. It’s human nature to leave seeing an Optometrist until you notice your vision deteriorating. The truth is, many of the most serious eye diseases develop gradually, often without noticeable signs in their early stages. And you may well still be able to see clearly.

In a recent Australian study, over 50% of participants found to have an eye condition did not know they had one prior to taking part#. The best safeguard against preventable vision loss is a regular comprehensive eye examination. Whether you notice a change in your vision or not – the fact is you need an expert Optometrist to see the real picture.

Time for an eye examination?

We’re passionate about helping you and your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy, clear vision. So, we urge you to ensure your whole family have an eye examination. Aim for at least every 2 years and every 12 months once over 65. Even if you can see clearly.
